A Democratic political action committee has dedicated itself to making sure that all of the big money is finally removed from politics so that achievement can take place. As a result of this mission, they have chosen the Big Money 20. This is a list of all the worst offenders when it comes to accepting money from lobbyists on the Republican side of the aisle.
Tiffany Muller, who is the executive director of End Citizens United, says that this group is considered to be the worst of the worst. It includes Senators Ted Cruz (Texas) and Dean Heller (Nevada). Paul Ryan was also included. In addition to these three men, 17 Congressional Representative also made the cut.
Mimi Walters (California), Claudia Tenney (New York), Peter Roskam (Illinois), Dana Rohrbacher (California), Rob Pittenger (North Carolina), Erik Paulsen (Minnesota), Pat Meehan (Pennsylvania), Tom MacArthur (New Jersey), Darrell Issa (California), Will Hurd (Texas), Duncan Hunter (California), Rodney Frelinghuysen (New Jersey), Ryan Costello (Pennsylvania), Mike Coffman (Colorado), Mike Bost (Illinois), Rod Blum (Iowa) and Mike Bishop (Michigan) round out the list.

This political action committee is looking to raise at least $35 million in order to achieve their midterm election goals. The same group spent $25 million during the same time period back in 2016 and is in search of the proper surge. Since some of the incumbents are believed to have a chance of being unseated, End Citizens United is going to target the weaker representatives.
It can be challenging for a political action committee to raise the money needed because they cannot ask any single member for more than $5,000 per donation. This means that they are going to have to rely on strength in numbers. These donation methods allow for the message to remain uncorrected. End Citizens United means business.
End Citizens United has also been paying close attention to the needs and desires of the American people. They are well aware of the fact that the average independent voter is looking for the proper campaign reform. These concerns rank high and are only beneath job creation and terrorism overall.
In order to achieve its objectives, this PAC is going to use every resource that it has at their disposal. According to the company’s past research, their message has been effectively conveyed at the Congressional level and they are confident about the level of success that they are going to be able to achieve in the future.

We need to treat the cause not just the symptoms. Our campaign finance system has loopholes that allows countries like Russia to meddle in our elections. https://t.co/Y7d1g560ns
